I'm not a fan of meeting parents/meeting my parents unless I was going to get engaged and the whole nine yards.
And how soon do you expect to meet the other person’s parents and rest of the family? I would be very selective when and who I introduce them to.This is especially true of certain nationalities and cultures where dating is a family event.This thread does remind me of back when I was 18 and met this 17 year old's parents on the first date....Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...Perhaps you have a large extended family and hanging out with cousins or siblings? But really, if you're thinking about introducing her to your parents, make sure you've already become exclusive, otherwise it might be difficult to explain when she picks another guy over you.Given that I can barely tolerate being in the same room as my family for more than an hour, throwing a significant other into that would be like setting a fire on to dynamite.A lot of people are terrified of introducing their kids to a new dating partner too soon.Is it the same way with other family members-whether it be at a family gathering function or just to drop in and say hi? We are only going to want to meet them should they be ready to marry, and even then, we do not plan to hang out with them. Never, it's already bad enough that they think I'm in a relationship because they don't handle disappointment well and it's not realllly my fault for not clarifying that I'm not actually in a relationship...It really does not matter about introducing a friend to my family.We are a big italian family, and we all have lots of friends, and we enjoy good food.
